The VPN service
Some online services and resources are restricted to use from within the University of Portsmouth network domain. This means you normally won’t be able to access them from another network (e.g. via your home broadband provider or a company network).
The VPN Service
To address this the University provides the VPN (Virtual Private Network) service which will allow you to access services and resources from external networks as if you were on campus.
Information on how to set up VPN can be found on the Guide to the Virtual Private Network page.
Note that some resources may require you to enter a username and password for off campus access. These are listed on our Passwords for Resources page.
